Boy outfit #12

For Hen's frame Mini Boden runs a bit short in the pants and a bit large in the shirts, but if you throw 'em on the kid with a pair of cool knit-by-grandma superhero* socks, you have a boy outfit worthy of blogging.

And here's what the photo looked like before editing:
The original was too yellow for my liking and I remember hearing and/or reading that if something in the photo doesn't add to the awesomeness of the photo, it shouldn't be there so I cropped to my heart's content, removed the bit of superfluous toddler bike helmet, and rebuilt the base trim. Yes, I could have removed the cat door as well but we do have cats and usually they are very much a part of our photos so if they weren't actually making an appearance in this one, at least evidence of their existence is included.

*Hen tried these socks after receiving them last Christmas and nearly killed himself because of their slippery nature. However, he recently saw me sporting a pair and expressed an interest. So I invoked their superheroness to convince him to give them another try. And it worked.

If you wanted to risk it, you could (I hear) add clear silicone caulk in a dot pattern to the soles, et voila, no more slip. If you want to try that, I would test it on a not-important sock first.

He looks like he could be in a boy band, he's so hip!
